We've all heard the old saying "You can't take it with you..." But, when it comes to ponds, THIS one I can. (With the help of a tow truck, of course.) Luckily for me, my husband didn't really have me committed, although he did threaten to on more than one occasion. I spent practically every waking moment for the better part of two weeks working on my "new" pond and garden. Eventually, with a sore back and several callouses to show for my trouble, it turned out even better than I had imagined. The look of amazement on the faces of my friends, family and neighbors who see it for the first time, always makes me smile. And, what a great conversation starter it is!
